check. make certain that they pay any fines that we establish. pay their taxes, which is a critical part of this whole comprehensive approach. give them a chance to earn their way into citizenship, learning english and the basics about america's history. and basically, four, making sure that the amount of illegal immigrants that are -- the amount of legal immigration allowed in the united states is based on the state of our economy. we are going to enshrine in here the principle that when it comes to job openings, americans get the first grab at it. americans get first opportunity. and that's the way it should be. we're going to make certain beyond that that there are opportunities for others. and there are a variety of different ways we approach it. let me close by just addressing one issue near and dear that i was -- happy to have both chuck and john refer to. it has been 12 years, 12 years since i introduced the dream act. i never gave up because when you meet these young people, you can't give up. but there were some disappointing times and some sad times. and a lot of tears shed whe

. boehner said we're not going to raise taxes on the american people, blah, blah blah. here we go again. i saw an interesting thing in the "new york times" yesterday. this is not enough revenue to -- you know -- the president what we got in the last fiscal cliff, right? >> yeah, $700 billion over ten years. >> stephanie: but the point is and we can say it over and over people do not want the safety nets cut. this -- this piece said citizens of other advanced nations appear to agree it is worth the price. americans have been more hostile toward taxation than other countries. there's pew poll almost two to one it was more important to avoid cuts in social security payments, and this for everybody. 74% of american oppose shorter days or more crowded classrooms. clearly americans value government services. we may welcome an opportunity to save them. what do you think about all of that? >> i think it's very accurate. the american people basically want to do everything -- they want to eat everything drink everything they want to drink, smoke everything they want to smoke, and

's eve, taxes as a practical matter when up for everyone in the country at midnight. the senate republicans and subsequently a majority of the house voted to make 99 percent of the bush tax cuts permanent, thereby preventing another event like new year's eve. that came about because the law sunset it. we now have achieved permanency for 99 percent of the american people on tax issues. i would venture to say there is not a single republican vote in the house or senate to provide more revenue. the reason for that is we know revenue is not the problem. the president has been able to give all the revenue he wanted by raising taxes on everyone making above 200,250,000 per couple. it barely been able to operate the government for about eight days. this is not a revenue problem. this is a spending problem. yes. the revenue issue is behind us. whenever new taxes the president is going to get, he got. the operation of law. and we are now going to focus on the real problems which is not the we tax too little, but spend too much. yes, that is where we are. >> a convention of the debt limit
